How to Add addon domain to Dreamhost Webhosting

Dreamhost is my favorite shared hosting because of the performance it has given me in last one year. If you have been thinking of buying shared hosting , dreamhost is the way you should go.

Login to your cpanel and click on manage domains. There enter your domain URL and assign how your domain should add for prefix www. I selected the second option so that any one type my domain without www will automatically be redirected to www prefix.  This has an added advantage on SEO.

Last option is php mode and setting up Google apps for your domain. Dreamhost makes it very easy to configure Google apps (professional email address for your domain).

Click on Fully host domain. If you have purchased your domain from somewhere else, you need to change your DNS to point it to Dreamhost. That will be

  • ns1.dreamhost.com
  • ns2.dreamhost.com
  • ns3.dreamhost.com

I’m sure those who have dreamhost account will find this tutorial useful. If you don’t have dreamhost account yet. You can take advantage of Dreamhost free trial account now and grab a webhosting for yourself.
